Fifteen artists are ready to take to the road in order to go in your backyard, around a campfire, to spend a few hours in your company.

An original idea

This tour was originally born out of a need that had Andréanne A. Malette to prolong the pleasure of playing in the formula intimate.

“I was finishing up the tour of my first album and I didn’t want to stay there. So I decided to make a living for my music closer to the people and it is this that has given the tour of camp Fire, ” adds the artist, a native of Orleans, near Ottawa. I have lived this beautiful experience, the first two years and after that, I had the taste to enjoy other artists. It is for this reason that I now wear the hat of producer for the past two years. And I like it very much “.

Despite the pandemic, the artist and the producer believes that the public will be waiting for you.

“There were questions in the spring,” she says. It was not certain to revive the tour, but with the measures of déconfinement, we believe we can get there. People like the artists want to be together and what better way than to do it around a campfire. “

A new album

We could not end the discussion with Andréanne without asking him for news about his second album.

“We had planned to release the album in the fall and we are always on time, she said. However, I must say that I have not been very productive over the last few months, and the song writing has not been at the pace that I had hoped for “.

However, the singer-songwriter who resides in Granby, is that the new album sees the light of day by the end of the year.

“Or maybe at the beginning of 2021,” she adds. I don’t want all the same to not add too much pressure. But it is realistic to believe it ! “

Besides the fact that this 5th edition of the tour of Fire camp to be shortened to two months and that five artists-in-less consists of, a sound technician will accompany the artists to manipulate the equipment and ensure the smooth running of the show. Finally, it is necessary to inform the public that the directives concerning open fires will be respected.
